Bridgetown’s Old Gaol and Police Quarters provide an opportunity to see how prisoners were incarcerated in the late 1800s. Walk through the cells, storeroom, kitchen, exercise yard and police living rooms to gain an insight into prison life over the 90 years they remained in operation.
Whilst the buildings are only open on Saturday between 10am and 2pm, you are welcome to walk around the outside grounds at other times. Alternatively contact the Bridgetown Visitors Centre prior to your arrival to arrange for a volunteer guide to show you through.
Whilst in Bridgetown, walk along the banks of the Blackwood River to the River Park and visit the site of the original police station. Bridgetown is a three hour drive south of Perth.
